What is the Chinese Zodiac Year?
A Chinese Zodiac year means the Zodiac sign associated with the animal’s name, which represents that particular year. Each Chinese year has a particular zodiac sign and is known as the Chinese zodiac year. Each zodiac sign refers to an animal and belongs to a specific zodiac sign represented by that animal. These 12 animals are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster and Pig. The years start with Rat and then the Ox and so on… the Pig represents the last year, and then the cycle continues again with Rat, Ox, Tiger, etc. The year 2020 was a Chinese Zodiac year with the Rat Zodiac sign, the current year 2021 is the Chinese zodiac year with Ox Chinese Zodiac sign and the year 2022 will be the year with the Chinese zodiac sign Tiger and so on.
The Chinese Astrologers believe each year has some connection with the Zodiac signs. So, basically, as per the Chinese astrology chart, each year with a particular zodiac sign will turn back after a cycle of 12 years. Each Chinese year is influenced by its Zodiac animal sign that also affects the behaviour, career, fortune, love life, luck etc, of a person born in the year. The Chinese Lunar year dates vary every year between January and February, unlike the English Calendar year, January 1st to 31st DecembChinese Calendar years have been classified into 12 Chinese zodiac signs. The Chinese calendar is different from English Calendar. At most places, the English calendar is followed, which starts from January 1st to December 31st. After that, a new year begins. Whereas in the Chinese calendar, a year may start from January or February and then end in January or February.
Chinese zodiac signs’ chart is straightforward to understand, and like other charts, it has a particular category of animals stating the Chinese Zodiac Chart, which repeats itself after every 12 years. If I explain with an example, then before 2020, the Rat Chinese zodiac year was the year 2008, a year of economic disaster quite similar to 2020 when the world was hit by a covid pandemic, a vast and unidentified health hazard. These zodiac years are again classified into the elements wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
